somewhere we  have a  bunch  of  ISA  cards  that  are  like the    ports on my hp  time share  system  just  not  16 ports...I seem  to remember   between  4 and  8...  and they  were   for a   PC  type  machine  of  course  with the  ISA ports.    Although  seen  years  ago  I  think I  remember  which   shelf  rack they  got   crammed into.  - Anyone  remember  something  like  this? as  i  remember  there  are  enough  of  them  to  let   some   go.
